I attended the combined Pennsylvania Trappers Association and Fur Takers of America Rendezvous held in Washington, PA. today. A fantastic day despite the weather. It was like a fall day with rain and cool temperatures in the 60's. I did buy some fox and mink boards, a new skinning knife, some real cool cable cutters and a guy was selling gelled urine which I'll have to try.

Here is the combined NAFA / FHA skinning tent. I spent a lot of time there today.

The vendor buildings were full of so much stuff but didn't have nearly the amount of money that was need. The window shopping was great!

Thanks for taking time to get some pictures and share them with us. It had to be a fun day. Looks like the NAFA guy copied your ViseGrip pliers set up! :roll: I am not sure what I think of "jelled urine"...

Holy Cow! I walked by your area a couple of times yesterday and didn't know that was you! I got there yesterday morning just in time for Don's mink presentation and hung around until about 1:30 before heading to Cabela's.
